The folks on the & team like to know the download counts during the first month or so after a publication.
Ok, we publish D&D products for fun (look up the word “masochist”), but it’s exciting to know that others like what we produce! So the download counts are important.
As of last night the download count for Issue 12 is 3,677.
That’s a nice total for roughly the one-month mark. It’s not our highest, but that number makes us feel great!
Since we published Issue 1 in May 2012, we track our download counts by publication by month. It’s nice to see totals and it helps us look at trends. It also lets us see how far we’ve come. Issue 1 had 688 downloads in the first month. Issue 12 had over 1,000 in the first week. Yeah, a bit of difference!
It took several years and a lot of work by the team to get the word out that we exist, and that we publish good quality materials in a pretty package. Since I hadn’t updated the counts in a few months I did that this morning. I was a bit freaked to see our total download counts across all publications:
